The Rijksmuseum is a Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history in Amsterdam. The museum is located at the Museum Square in the borough Amsterdam South, close to the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Concertgebouw. It was founded in The Hague in 1800 and moved to Amsterdam in 1808. It is the largest art museum in the country and features masterpieces by Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Johannes Vermeer.

Photography is not a main feature of the museum, but there are some photographic exhibits. Check for exhibitions if photography is the main reason for your visit.

The Rijksmuseum Gardens, Rijks Shop and Café are also open to visitors without a ticket from 0900 to 1800hrs.

You should note that it can be very busy in the Rijksmuseum. Museumkaart and e-ticket holders do not have to go to the ticket counter.

Something that may interest photographers is the international Rijksstudio Award. Anyone can take part and all art forms are allowed, as long as the design is based on a piece from the Rijksmuseum collection and includes images from Rijksstudio. The first prize is 10,000 euro, the second 2,500 euro, and the third 1,500 euro. In addition, a people’s choice award of 1,000 euro is up for grabs.
